“Tom Gray and Mark Johnson are the rusty, banged up Cadillacs of the slide guitar, side by side coughing up smoke and spitting backwoods dirt, but unswerving in their precision and singular style.” — Hittin’ the Note Delta Moon plays deep roots swamp rock.
A whisky-flavored voice delivers 21st century lyrics, while two slide guitars wind around a buttshaking groove like kudzu vines on a barbwire fence. Ever since winning the International Blues Challenge in Memphis in 2003, Delta Moon has toured steadily in the United States, Canada and Europe. The Roots Music Association named lead vocalist Tom Gray Blues Songwriter of the Year in 2008. Tom is well known as a songwriter, having penned, among many songs recorded by other artists, Cyndi Lauper’s 1980s hit “Money Changes Everything.” Delta Moon’s music has been featured on Showtime, Lifetime, the Food Network and more. Delta Moon’s latest album, Cabbagetown — named for one of the band’s favorite Atlanta neighborhoods — came out in March 2017. The band has been touring incessantly behind it, visiting nine countries since spring, every night winning enthusiastic audience response. “Great grooves, thought provoking lyrics, infectious hooks, sweet slide guitar work and mountains of superb tone.” - No Depression
